Last Christmas, Carolina Herrera’s husband, Reinaldo, designed an exquisite compact for his wife decorated with a day design on one side and a starry night on the other. Made by Verdura, the piece served as a starting point for Herrera’s pre-fall collection. “I was so fascinated by night and day, I decided I wanted to have this [idea] in my collection,” she said. The result was an abundance of celestial motifs, from golden stars embroidered on a lovely navy gown to tarot card images on colorful dresses.
Herrera’s day looks, meanwhile, featured charming cocktail dresses, including one with a stem flower jacquard, and suits in a magnified houndstooth pattern that almost looked digital.
